1. Google Earth 5.0 is now a stunning program. Its inclusion of Sky and Space; and Oceans depths, make for very exciting computer games that may be sellable and profitable.
2. There are opportunities for both professionally-created games that are as sophisticated as any now currently on sale; and User created games such as Treasure Hunts or Amazing Race type formats [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amazing_Race_(U.S._TV_series) ] in which a Games Master lays a trail with clues for Players to follow. Google Earth 5.0 already has enough User features as is, for an Amazing Race or Treasure Hunt type games to be created but if Google can tweak its Google Earth program a little, it will be a lot easier and more fun for both Games Master and Players.
3. For example, TH or AR type trails can be laid that require googling. The clues can span the entire internet and knowledge contained therein. For example, starting from any point in Google Earth 5.0, the first waypoint or WP1, can be clued as "the nearest star" and upon googling, the Player/s discover that this is Proxima Centuri. So the Player types in Proxima Centauri into Google Earth 5.0 and is taken to it. There, he finds a PlaceMark with the next clue, and so on. For more fun and creativity, clues at each PlaceMark can be in the form of Text, Audio or Video file. The PlaceMark icon of a Pin, for such games, can be transformed into something else and here, an opportunity for an advertiser to put his name, logo and even audio and/or video clip onto the Game PlaceMark Clue. The AR format seems to be very well established and more importantly, widely known, so Games Masters should copy it unless copyrighted. AR may want to officially do a Google Earth version of its race, either as a standalone programme or to advertise its tv version more widely. The clues are limited only by creavitiy and invention and knowledge of obscure facts and figures. Even very difficult clues are possible because googling is available. It may be more convenient to have a google search box right within the Google Earth program for such gameplay.
4. Thus, these TH or AR type of games can be implemented almost immediately. This should lead to greater use of Google Earth. Games can be in any language, so worldwide appeal. AR is strictly a tv programme and only for passive tv watching but this game on Google Earth will be played by huge numbers and by anybody. The Game PlaceMark holding such games clues can be set to expire or auto delete after a set time but those games that are very good can be kept forever and played by all new users for all time. Thus, the small kid can also create a game trail for his friends while professionals like AR can create very professional game trails that will remain forever, thus adding to the value of Google Earth over time. You may want to let AR types make permanent trails while amateurs with lower standards gmail their creations to their friends for private use only, without filling the official version of Google Earth with too many unprofessional placemarks and files.
5. As for computer or video type games, there is no limit to the kinds of gameplay possible. First Person Shooter games, Strategy games, group players games, aliens from outer space games, space warfare, spaceships, conquest of other star constellations as well as Earth, SIM games, etc, every known game format is possible. Games developers need only to have access to Google Earth's source codes, maybe. Or Google itself can create these games in partnership with games developers. Games music and sound effects, etc, are all possible. Wars can take place in space, on Mars and other planets, on Earth and even underwater on Earth. No limits except imagination.
6. You could also have educational games. For these, talk to educationists. Geography, Oceanography, Volcanology, Marine Biology, etc, all are fair game for educational games.
7. Also, every time Google Earth gets into the world news, like the Swiss officials who found a marijuana field hidden in the middle of crops, Google should quickly capitalise on this kind of publicity [can create some yourself] and quickly put a new Google Earth In The News section highlighting this Swiss field, for example, to let users see for themselves.
8. Games are limited only by imagination. There are quite a few good games companies who would love to create games based on Google Earth.
